Blaze Gear adds some new Armor and Tools to Minecraft, which provide some special abilities. These items are made from Brimsteel Ingots, which can only be obtained after reaching the Nether.
This is one of many of our Mod Wikis, here at Minecraft Guides. If you're interesting in finding out about more of Minecraft's Best Mods, then check out our dedicated section! We allow you to sort by Forge, Fabric, Minecraft Version and Genre!
To get started with the mod, you’ll need to craft Brimsteel Ingots. A single Ingot can be crafted from 1 Iron Ingot, 3 Blaze Powder, 2 Magma Cream, 2 Gold Nuggets and 1 Ghast Tear.
As you can see, each Ingot is quite expensive. With so much Blaze Powder and Ghast Tears being required, you wont be able to craft them until you’ve visited the Nether, and defeated a lot of Blazes.
You’re able to craft a Brimsteel Helmet, Chestplate, Leggings and Boots. They can be crafted like regular armor pieces, so you’ll need to collect 24 Brimsteel Ingots to create a full set of the armor.
When wearing the set, you’ll have Blaze Arms spinning around you, with smoke particles emitting too, so you look like a Blaze. In total, the set provides 20 armor points.
You’re not immune to fire when wearing Brimsteel. However, you can stand on hot blocks, like Magma. Brimsteel is immune to Fire & Lava, like Netherite, meaning it won’t be destroyed if dropped inside of it.
Brimsteel Tools will allow you to set entities on fire when attacked. Fire Aspect can be added to increase the duration that mobs are on fire for. Mining flammable blocks will also be faster.
Although the best feature comes to the Brimsteel Pickaxe. When mining blocks, they’ll drop their smelted form. For example, mining Iron or Gold Ore will instantly drop Iron and Gold Ingots, removing the need for a Furnace. Same goes for a Brimsteel Axe, which will provide Charcoal from Trees.
Crafting these items are relatively similar to regular tools, except the use Blaze Rods in place of Sticks. So to craft a Brimsteel Pickaxe, you’ll need 3 Brimsteel Ingots and 2 Blaze Rods.

How to InstallIf you haven't already, make sure to install Forge for Minecraft. It's a simple process and takes just a few minutes. Once Forge is installed:
- Download the mod for your Minecraft Version. It will be a .JAR file.
- Take this file, and place it in the 'mods' folder of your Minecraft directory. If this folder doesn't exist, create it. The easiest way to access your Minecraft directory is opening the game, going to Resource Packs and pressing the 'Open Resource Pack Folder' button.
- Once it's inside the mods folder, run Minecraft with the Forge preset selected. The mod will be installed and can be played with in-game.
